The Experience

We invite you to mentor a slum-bred child, from one of the poorest areas of Kenya, to be all they can be in life! We're looking for a creative person who loves to work with kids and like to create something together with them, e.g. painting, drawing, modeling, singing, teaching instruments, dancing... A person that can mingle easily with the poor and change their thinking. Are you the one we're looking for?
